  1. Thanks Nimrod, I nearly pulled the trigger on the same Acer monitor but I took a chance on a refurb Dell, came up
  2. Thanks for the reply. It happens when no 4K media is displayed. Oddly enough I can watch 4K media on YouTube no problem, I am sure the cable is a basic DP one as there is no identifying markings on the cable. My 980ti SC supports DP1.2 but I hope to upgrade to a 1080ti SC soon which supports DP1.4 so I think I will grab a good quality one of those cables and be done with it. Not really concerned with cost.
  3. Not been on here for a while but always lurking. Running a Dell 32 in 4K monitor (UP3214Q) fed by a 980ti SC. The monitor often goes black for about 2 secs and the DP symbol appears at the top right corner of the screen. A Google search found similar problems on this and other Dell 4K monitors. The answer seems to be to dump the Dell DP cable and replace with a better one. So, looking for recommendations on the best DP 1.2 cable to use ? Any point in going for a DP 1.4 cable ? Thanks. Buster.
  4. Greetings. I am tempted to pull the trigger on the LG 31MU97, 32 inch 4K monitor, it will be pushed by a single 980ti SC. This is a tue 4K monitor at 4096 x 2160 as opposed to UHD which is 3840 x 2160. The main use will be for FSX and Dirt Rally. Does any member here have one that can give me some feed back on it ? Cheers.
  5. Waco, is that Sammy a TV or monitor ? can you let me know the model number so I can check it out. Thanks.
  6. Greetings chaps. Once again I need some advice from the experts lurking on here on 40 inch 4K monitors. The ole buzzard has decided that the lounge needs re-arranging due to new furniture incoming that she bought. This means that I will no longer be able to run my gaming PC through my home theater as I do now, I am being evicted to the spare room which, unbeknown to her, will become my new cave. Its no big deal really but having been used to projectors and huge screens I will now have to get a decent size monitor, I recently pulled the trigger on a new GTX980ti SC so that's in there. I'm am going 4K and looking at the Phillips 4065UC 40" for $768 on Amazon. I had to have a heart to heart with the Mrs, I sat her down and held her soft hand and gently explained that it was just like when she buys a fancy new dress you have to get the shoes and bag to match, she completely understood where I was coming from and I got the green light ............ result ! ..... yeeees !! ..... get in !!! So, chaps, I have been out of the monitor scene for so long I don't know whats what anymore, I have been reading up on Free-Synch, G-Synch and IPS stuff etc but I would be grateful for some advice on the best monitor of this size to go for, I can spend around $1k maybe a bit more. My gaming is mainly FSX, Dirt Rally and F1 stuff. Cheers. Buster.
  7. I recently bought a Samsung S32D850T from Amazon, I had it shipped to the Virgin Islands via Miami and unfortunately it got damaged on the way. Because it shipped outside the US Amazon washed their hands of it but fortunately it was insured by the shipper to the VI and I got reimbursed. The LCD got cracked right in the middle so now, essentially useless. I don't want to toss it, can it be repaired ? is it of any use to anyone ? Ebay maybe ?
  8. Just to close off this thread, would you all agree that it now looks certain the GPU is dead ?
  9. Thanks phil69, that fixed it !!, pulled the GPU and plugged the monitor into the MOBO, now back up and running. So that eliminates a corrupt OS or the SSD it lives on so I looks like my trusty ole 580 is toast ? What do you you chaps think ?
  10. Done that Spike, no problems found, even run Scannow in command prompt, nothing found.
  11. OK, a bit of an overdue update ( not had time to deal with it ) Tried all the suggestions above, no luck, re seated the GPU & RAM. Checked all SSD & MOBO connections, all seemed fine. I can report a slight improvement, I now get the happy beep during the MS logo but it still looks like the BIOS is not handing off to the OS. I would do a non destructive re install of the OS but I don't think it can be done in safe mode ? Any advice chaps ?
  12. Greetings. A fairly new build and been working great, now suddenly it wont boot up properly, I get the MS logo briefly then a blank screen, it does not get as far as the happy beep when the BIOS hands off to the OS. Any thoughts on this chaps ? Thanks, Buster.
  13. Which is better, Titan X or 980ti ?
  14. Thanks chaps, you confirmed my suspicions. I have been out of the loop on this stuff for a while, whats the difference between a 980 and a 980ti ? Would I be better off with a Titan X ? Cost is not a concern and AMD is not an option.
